assuming the directorship of the Kellogg Institute is

something like taking off in a jet and climbing at a steep angle from the runway: you fasten your seatbelt, hear the engines roar, feel the acceleration push you into your seat, and adapt to the new pressurized environment. The pace and trajectory of the Institute is breathtaking, and its momentum sweeps you upward with the intense energy of talks and visitors, students and fellows, conferences and publications, policy debates and fieldwork. Looking back on my first year as director, instead, is like having reached a new cruising altitude where I can unfasten my seatbelt, get up and look around. And what a view there is from this altitude! Vast expanses of the world unfold before our eyes in the work of the Kellogg Institute over the course of a year, stretching our horizons and giving us an unparalleled perspective on democracy and human development. In fact, there is so much going on here that it has become difficult to catalog everything in our annual report—and a mere listing of all our programs and activities wouldn’t adequately capture the Institute’s character as a vibrant intellectual community dedicated to the advancement of vital human goods and to the service of Notre Dame’s distinctive mission in the world. For that reason, we have adopted a new style for this annual report, highlighting just a few illustrative examples of the world-class research that our faculty are generating, of the outstanding educational experiences we are providing to our students, and of the fruitful linkages that we have been constructing, both at Notre Dame and beyond. Together with selected data, images, and quotations, these stories aim to give you a window into the day-to-day life of the Kellogg Institute and to convey the extraordinary richness of this particular academic year. Consider this your first-class in-flight magazine. Get something to drink, recline your seat, and enjoy the trip. I’ve enjoyed my first year immensely and am excited and privileged to be leading the Kellogg Institute into another great year ahead.

Being socially and politically active has led me to ask fundamental questions about politics, about autocracies at work, and about how people defy authoritarian rule.” —GUILLERMO TREJO, Faculty Fellow

Faculty Fellows Advance Understanding of Democracy and Human Development At the center of the Kellogg Institute’s initiatives are more than 100 faculty fellows from across the University. Their research on critical global challenges—with a focus on Kellogg themes of democracy and human development—informs policy and academic debates around the world.

for faculty fellow Guillermo Trejo, a political scientist passionate about addressing political change and democratization in Latin America, the Kellogg Institute is an “ideal environment” for scholarship with the potential to influence policy. Trejo moved from Duke University to Notre Dame in 2012, drawn by the prospect of joining the Kellogg community of scholars.

“So many fought so hard and so long to democratize Mexico and other Latin American countries,” he observes. “One would expect democracy to produce peace and development.” Yet, with surging organized crime, many countries in Latin America are experiencing unprecedented levels of criminal violence. “The overarching question is, why do some democracies produce peace and development and others the opposite?” says Trejo.

In Popular Movements in Autocracies: Religion, Repression, and Indigenous Collective AcHe suggests that answers may hinge on the tion in Mexico (Cambridge University Press, quality of the transition from authoritarian 2012), Trejo demonstrated rule to democracy.

and others the opposite?”

“The competition for souls in rural indigenous areas where Protestant missionaries had become active led prominent Catholic bishops and priests to build the social infrastructure for the mobilization of Mexico’s most marginalized ethnic minority groups,” he says. In his current research, he is investigating the pervasive violence that assails Latin America.

“When transitions primarily address elections without concurrently reframing security systems, violence is pervasive,” he believes. Trejo is eager to make connections to the policy implications inherent in his scholarship.

“As a Mexican citizen living in the US, I can’t divorce what I do as a scholar from its impact on policy. At Kellogg, science and policy can come together in a very natural way.”

Visiting Fellow Collaboration Enriches Kellogg Community of Scholars Outstanding scholars from around the world energize our intellectual community through the signature Visiting Fellows Program. In addition to advancing research on Kellogg themes, visiting fellows collaborate with faculty, enrich student learning, and connect Kellogg to an international network of scholars and institutions.

rising scholar Kristin Michelitch jumped at the chance to spend the 2012–13 academic year as a Kellogg visiting fellow, collaborating in real time with Faculty Fellow Jaimie Bleck on an innovative joint project that brings together questions of democracy and development in Mali. Bleck was equally pleased by the opportunity. “Kristin is one of the best out there in coming up with creative ways to measure behavior in the field,” she says.

“We turned our attention to how radio has affected people’s political views in a time of incredible upheaval,” says Michelitch.

Deepening Intellectual Community Intellectual community grows and flourishes at Kellogg in multiple individual interactions—and in distinctive gatherings designed to bring together scholars, students, and practitioners in a lively mix that sparks provocative dialogue and engenders new scholarly projects.

new frontiers in economic development—

china forum—Moving beyond conventional scholarly debates, the Kellogg forum “China, the Chinese and the World: Trajectories of Change” took the form of a wide-ranging “global conversation” about a country grappling with monumental change.

Faculty Fellow Joseph Kaboski, who organized the series, called it “a wonderful chance to put graduate students and faculty in contact with leading scholars in the field.”

“By design, the forum brought together a remarkable array of figures whose work is China—activists, editors, journalists, lawyers, as well as experts in anthropology, geography, defense and security, public health, history, politics, religion, popular culture, and human rights,” said Faculty Fellow Lionel Jensen, who conceived and organized the two-day event.

Five of the world’s preeminent development economists brought their ideas to Notre Dame in 2013 in a Kellogg series cosponsored by the Department of Economics.

Each distinguished economist’s visit included a public lecture and sessions with students in Kaboski’s graduate seminar on advanced microeconomic development. “Our students had the rare opportunity to get up to speed on the frontier research of these scholars—and bounce their own ideas off them as well,” said Kaboski. Speakers included Michael Kremer, Gates Professor of Developing Societies at Harvard University, whose research examines education and health in developing countries, and rising star Nicholas Bloom of Stanford University, who studies the impact of uncertainty shocks, innovation, and technology. “I don’t believe there is another course anywhere on this topic that has brought together this level of talent in one graduate economics seminar,” said Kaboski.

Discussion focused on prospects for democracy; what dramatic changes in China’s leadership mean for the global community; and how the socioeconomic and environmental changes brought about by the country’s economic transformation are affecting ordinary citizens. According to human rights activist John Kamm, one of two MacArthur “genius” award winners in attendance, “the people at this conference represented the very best of American scholarship in this field.” “By dint of very hard work,” he said, “we have put together a body of knowledge that can help our country to understand and work with China for a better world.”

… with this unusual gathering, there was a robust sense of crossing borders, of bringing people into the same setting who were not only from different disciplines, but beyond them in areas like journalism and the military.” —Jeffery Wasserstrom, Editor, Journal of Asian Studies

V-Dem gives researchers essential tools for understanding how democracies are born and why they survive or not.� —Michael Coppedge, Faculty Fellow

Promoting Scholarly Creativity and Production Scholarly production takes many forms—monographs, collected volumes, journal articles, working papers. At the Kellogg Institute, we create the space and provide resources for our faculty and visiting fellows to explore new projects, bring them to fruition, and share them with others in the wider intellectual community.

“imagine how much better we could understand the birth and death of democracies around the world if we had hundreds of fine-grained indicators for all countries and years,” says Faculty Fellow Michael Coppedge. Three years in, scholars are on the verge of realizing that vision as they begin to drill down into new data available from the Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) project, an international collaboration led by Coppedge, former Visiting Fellow John Gerring (Boston University), and from Sweden, Staffan I. Lindberg (University of Gothenburg) and Jan Teorell (Lund University). The effort, which has received seed funding and administrative support from Kellogg, aims to produce vastly improved indicators of democracy for use by researchers, NGOs, international organizations, activists, and journalists. With new funding from the European Commission and 7 other funders, V-Dem is gathering data from more than 1500 experts around the world. In a preview to the DC policy community in May, Coppedge and Lindberg demonstrated how drilling down into the data set will make possible new kinds of democracy research and policy assessment. “V-Dem is designed to tap into neglected dimensions of democracy, in addition to the electoral and liberal versions of democracy favored in the US,” says Coppedge. “It is on its way to providing the global community with the world’s most accurate and detailed democracy ratings.”

My experiences with Kellogg have entirely defined my time at Notre Dame. The lessons I’ve learned in the classroom as an IDS minor and in the field as a student researcher will always remain near and dear to my heart.” —Kristen Kelly ’13, International Development Studies

Beyond the Classroom—Engaging the World through Fieldwork Internships and fellowships provide undergraduates with hands-on experiences in the developing world that can be transformative. Such encounters prepare students for the International Development Studies (IDS) and Latin American Studies Program (LASP) minors and for future independent field research.

Drawn to the IDS minor by his involvement with the Institute’s Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity, Christopher Newton ’15 spent summer 2013 in post-genocide Rwanda on a Kellogg Experiencing the World Fellowship. The political science major wrote from the field about his powerful experience:

I have been able to carry out exactly the kind of fieldwork I dreamed of when I first drafted my research project.” —Sandra Botero, PhD Fellow

Investing in the Next Generation of Scholars Engagement with the supportive Kellogg community coupled with generous research funding makes all the difference to the graduate students affiliated with the Institute. Drawn to work with renowned Notre Dame faculty, they become an integral part of the Institute.

in the past year, Kellogg PhD Fellow Sandra Botero (political science) has received not just one but two prestigious awards to support her project, “High Courts and Socioeconomic Rights in Latin America.” The awards—an SSRC Fellowship and a National Science Foundation (NSF) Dissertation Research Improvement Grant—have enabled her to conduct field research in Argentina, complimenting earlier fieldwork in her native Colombia. Selected for five years of Kellogg support through a supplemental PhD fellowship at the beginning of her time at Notre Dame, Botero is now building her reputation as a scholar by conducting independent research.


“It has been a fascinating and challenging experience, allowing me to learn about the way high courts, the government, and civil society interact by observing them and by speaking with people who are directly involved in the cases I study,” Botero explains.


Kellogg’s contribution goes way beyond the numbers.”

“I interviewed government officials, litigants, human rights activists, lawyers, and researchers, as well as current and former justices and staffers in both high tribunals.”

Drawing on data from local archives and interviews, Botero’s dissertation investigates the impact of recent high court rulings on socioeconomic rights in Latin America by examining the policy outcomes of landmark rulings on health, environmental, and social welfare issues in Colombia and Argentina.

Making Connections— Kellogg through the Year Kellogg collaborates with partners across campus and around the world to link scholarship to pressing global issues. We aim to explore the complex challenges of democracy and human development by building ties between policymakers, academics, and practitioners.


Notre Dame

Linking Development Theory and Practice

“How Can a University Promote Integral Human Development?”

“In the Field: Cultivating Collaboration and Innovation”

Former president of Catholic Relief Services Ken Hackett, now US ambassador to the Vatican, called for research into best practices and principled approaches that could shape the public policy agenda in his Kellogg address on the role of the university in promoting human development.

Over 70 students presented original research, conducted in more than 30 countries, at the Institute’s fifth annual student-led Human Development Conference. Sponsored by the Institute’s Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity, the event attracted more than 200 students, faculty members, and development experts from around the globe.

Renowned economist Paul Collier of Oxford University and practitioner Sean Callahan, CEO of Catholic Relief Services, came together at a Kellogg forum to explore the role of US foreign policy in international development.

Inspiring…both speakers linked a moral engagement in the world to concrete solutions that make a difference in people’s lives.” —Steve Reifenberg, Kellogg Executive Director

“Notre Dame could make a real contribution over time by studying and documenting non-traditional approaches to human development, particularly integral human development and its focus on the dignity of the individual,” he said.

“You are the trailblazers in changing the face of the world,” Sara Sievers, senior director at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, told students in her keynote address.

Kellogg and CCHR Bring Transitional Justice Expert to Notre Dame Hewlett Visiting Fellow for Public Policy José Zalaquett spoke on “The Moral and Political Reconstruction of Broken Societies” to an audience of students and faculty from around the globe during a residency arranged by the Kellogg Institute in collaboration with the Center for Civil and Human Rights. Renowned for his opposition to the Pinochet regime, Zalaquett helped to develop Amnesty International and served on Chile’s National Commission for Truth and Reconciliation.

Washington DC Towering Figures in Mexican Studies— a Magnet for the Notre Dame Community Mexican democracy advocate Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, a Kellogg Hewlett Visiting Fellow for Public Policy, and preeminent Oxford University historian Alan Knight were the big draw for a series of discussions on contemporary Mexico, a long-time Kellogg focus. Organized by the Institute’s Mexico Working Group, “Mexico Week” culminated in the biennial Undergraduate Conference on Mexico, an opportunity for students, faculty, and outside scholars to engage with the nation’s rich history, politics, and culture. This year, undergraduates presented original research to an audience that included keynoters Cárdenas and Knight.

Varieties of Democracy Data Unveiled in Washington

“Landmark Research” with Policy Implications for Latin America

At the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Faculty Fellow Michael Coppedge and coinvestigator Staffan I. Lindberg of Sweden demonstrated how data emerging from their Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) project will make possible new kinds of democracy research and policy assessment. V-Dem is an international collaboration producing fine-grained indicators of hundreds of aspects of democracy for all countries from 1900 to the present.

Faculty Fellow Scott Mainwaring captured the attention of policy makers and analysts with the presentation of a new analysis of Latin American democratization. Two Harvard University Latin America experts with ties to Kellogg—former Institute Director Frances Hagopian and former Visiting Fellow Steven Levitsky—offered commentary. Cynthia Arnson of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the event cosponsor, called the work “magisterial.”

We aim for V-Dem to be everyone’s first choice for detailed and reliable democracy data.”

In attendance were over 100 representatives of academic and policy institutions, including the World Bank, the US Department of State, embassies, international organizations, and NGOs.

With text message alerts, community members can be confident when they start the long walk to the clinic that the staff and medicine they need will be available when they arrive.” —Luke Chicoine, PhD ’12, Ford Program Research Advisor

Research Informs Community Engagement What works and why? The Kellogg Institute aims to make a difference in the world by linking lessons learned in research to people grappling with real-world issues in communities close to home and across the globe.

uganda—The Institute’s Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity is trying to find out if text messaging can improve the health of village residents in research underway in Uganda’s Nnindye Parish, where the Ford Program has been engaged in community-led development work since 2008. With an $85,000 grant from the Verizon Foundation, the Ford mobile health project equipped the local health center with cell phonemessaging software and low-power computers. After receiving training in mobile literacy—including texting—health team members passed on their new skills to hundreds of other Nnindye residents.

notre dame—As part of Kellogg outreach to bring the world to local students, International Teacher Discussion Groups connect faculty, students, and international visitors with K-12 educators. This year, five faculty fellows and one graduate student shared research-based expertise with teachers from the local community. Topics included African democracy, rural and urban poverty in Peru, and teaching in the global classroom.

Health workers are now able to send out messages to remind women of prenatal or well-baby appointments or to spread the word when doctors are on site or vaccines become available. Meanwhile, Notre Dame researchers are studying the impact of the updated technology on health outcomes in the village. The Ford team and their local partners at Uganda Martyrs University hope better information access will increase rates of prenatal care for pregnant women and lower malnutrition among children. “The use of technology as a tool for sustainable community development is growing rapidly,” says Faculty Fellow Rev. Robert Dowd, CSC, the director of the Ford Program. “Improved health care is a top priority for the people of Nnindye. I am delighted that we can offer them these new tools while simultaneously studying their effectiveness.”

Developing Partnerships and Engaging Institutions around the World Engaging institutional partners on our core themes of democracy and human development is an integral part of Kellogg work. As highlighted in these illustrative examples, such partnerships range from deep-seated academic collaborations to increasingly strong linkages with development and policy organizations.

Notre Dame Kellogg shares staff with Notre Dame International and the Institute for Global Development, working together to find new ways for Notre Dame to address international issues.

Chile Deepening a long-standing relationship, Kellogg facilitates a new agreement between Chile’s Pontifical Catholic University and Notre Dame to step up faculty and student exchanges, thanks to funding by Chilean donor Andronico Luksic.

Washington DC A longtime partner, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, facilitates interaction between Kellogg faculty fellows and policymakers.

Argentina Working with multiple academic institutions, Kellogg cosponsors a conference in honor of Guillermo O’Donnell on the future of democracy in Argentina.

India Sweden The University of Gothenberg serves as the institutional home in Europe for the Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) project, just as the Kellogg Institute does in the US.

The Foundation for Sustainable Development and the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children partner with Kellogg to provide undergraduates with challenging, real-world internships that build on students’ academic skills and interest in grassroots development.

Uganda With Uganda Martyrs University, the Institute’s Ford Program has established an ongoing community partnership with Nnindye Parish, working with village residents to find creative and sustainable solutions to development challenges.

Kenya Catholic Relief Services is hosting the new Ford Program regional office in Nairobi. Together, they are exploring the development of new joint initiatives, like the Savings and Internal Lending Community groups they established previously in Uganda.
